And here's some background: Dougherty organizes a yearly event called Maker Faire, where people gather to show off their projects and creative concoctions. He publishes Make magazine, which is jam-packed with fantastic do-it-yourself projects – everything from making squishy circuits to building your own robot. And now he’s taking his make philosophy into classrooms across the country, with Makerspace where Dale wants to empower teachers and students to make things – whatever they want! Dale is at the helm of a full-on movement.
